Child Porn Trial Rescheduled for Ex-Vegas Strip Illusionist

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Trial has been rescheduled for a second time in Las Vegas for a German-born illusionist facing decades in prison and up to $1 million in fines on federal child pornography charges.

Jan Rouven Fuechtener’s lawyer, Jess Marchese, says he’s still receiving materials from prosecutors and preparing for trial in U.S. District Court.

Trial had been scheduled to begin next week.

The new date is Aug. 22.

Fuechtener performs as Jan Rouven. His Las Vegas Strip show closed following his arrest March 16, and the 38-year-old German citizen remains in federal custody.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

Prosecutors allege that a computer user named “Lars45” amassed more than 3,500 videos and images on computers at Fuechtener’s home. They say some depict sex acts with kindergarten-age children.
